Colorado Goldfields Launches Series: "Milling Dynamics in the News" -- Relevant Information for Company Shareholders

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) - Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCBB: CGFIA) announces today the commencement of a continuing series titled "Milling Dynamics in the News." This series is designed to be complementary to the Company's recently announced series "Gold Dynamics in the News." The two series together will provide relevant and complete information to our shareholders.

"Colorado Goldfields has a huge differential advantage because we own the only mill within several hundred miles, and have the capability to mill our own ore and pour doré right on our property. That makes combining news and events regarding gold with the latest developments in milling in an ongoing series uniquely applicable to our shareholders," said Stephen Guyer, CFO of Colorado Goldfields.

Simply stated, in obtaining gold from vein ore, the ore is first crushed in rod or ball mills, reducing the ore to a powdery substance from which the gold can be extracted by amalgamation with other elements or by placer procedures. About 70% is recovered at this point. The remainder is dissolved in dilute solutions of chemicals. The addition of metallic zinc to these solutions causes metallic gold to precipitate. This precipitate is refined by smelting. The purification is completed by electrolysis and the sludge produced will contain commercial quantities of silver, platinum, osmium, and other rare-earth metals.

While the basic process remains the same as at the turn of the 20th Century, new developments, especially in the geo-chemical area, continue to be discovered.

One of the primary sources of the latest expert information regarding advances in gold ore milling is M.D. Adams, of Mutis Liber Pty Ltd., Guildford, Australia, who recently served as editor for the contemporary publication, "Advances in Gold Ore Processing."

Dr. Adams stated, "The gold processing industry is experiencing change. As free-milling and oxide ores become depleted, more complex polymetallic and refractory ores are being processed, coupled with increasing pressure for stricter environmental compliance." These are issues and developments that the staff of Colorado Goldfields are constantly evaluating and considering as the Company moves closer to milling operations.

Last spring, the Company produced a video tour of its Pride of the West Mill. The video presentation may be viewed at

"Developments in milling receive far less attention than events and predictions regarding gold. Ironically, gold can not be produced without the milling process. As a company that owns its own mill, we understand this far better than the majority of junior mining companies operating today," stated Lee Rice, President and CEO of Colorado Goldfields.
